Gail Honeyman is a graduate of the universities of Glasgow and Oxford. Her debut novel Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine won the Costa First Novel Award and the British Book Awards Book of the Year. It was was short-listed for the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize, the Desmond Elliot Award, and the Author’s Club Best First Novel, and was long-listed for the Women’s Prize for Fiction.

Gail’s heroine, Eleanor Oliphant, leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life.

Gail Honeyman lives in Glasgow.

As part of the on-going Creative Conversation speaker series, novelist Gail Honeyman comes to campus to chat about her writing. Bring your lunch and burning questions!
